Russian River County Water District

RRCWD Home   •   Consumer Confidence Reports

This public district was organized in 1983 with the primary purpose to acquire the private Russian River Terrace and Rio Dell Water Companies. District directors issued assessment bonds and acquired grants to construct a new water delivery system consisting of two wells located near Steelhead Beach, four steel tanks and a distribution system including meters and fire hydrants.

The service area extends three miles along the Russian River from Marianna Road on the east to Summer Home Park on the west.

The system expanded in 1994 to include the Summer Home Park area. The local property owners approved a benefit assessment district to finance a new storage tank and distribution system with service meters and fire hydrants.

In 1998/99 the Hacienda area approved a similar benefit assessment district to renovate their water service system, again including a new storage tank, service meters and fire hydrants. In 2007, the District annexed two mutual water companies and adjacent areas which needed a safe, potable water supply. The two annexed systems include the Hollydale Mutual Water System and the Rural Canyon Mutual Water System.

Subsequent assessment proceedings will provide funds to construct improvements to these water systems. In 2015, the service area includes 1,252 customers.

The fire flow in the 128 fire hydrants located within this district deliver in excess of 1,000 gal/min. This exceeds the 750 gpm requirements of the California Public Utilities Code and the Department of Health Services.

Water Conservation Tips
  • Reduce irrigation by 10 to 20%.
  • Find and repair leaks now.
  • Inspect and tune up irrigation system monthly.
  • Irrigate between midnight and 6AM to reduce water loss from evaporation and wind.
  • Water landscape by hand during evening hours.
  • Use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveway, deck or patio.
  • Use a bucket and a hose with an automatic shut-off nozzle when you wash the car, or take your car to a carwash that recycles water.
  • Cover pools and hot tubs to reduce evaporation.
  • Use front-loading washing machines.
  • Run the dishwasher and washing machine with full loads only.
